Nahjul Balaaghah about Piety In Sermon 161, Ali: Drawing lessons from this world I advise you, O' servant of Allah, to fear Allah and to obey Him, because Taq’wa is the salvation for tomorrow and the deliverance permanent. Allah has warned of chastisement and did so thoroughly. He persuaded you towards virtues and did so fully. He described this world and its cutting away, and its short time and its switching ways. Therefore, ward off from you its lures, because little of it after death will follow you. It is the closest to Allah’s displeasure and the remotest from Allah’s pleasure. So close your eyes, O' servants of Allah, from its vexations and concerns, since you are certain about its separation from you and its changeable conditions. . ﺍﺍ ﺩ ، ﺇ ﺍ ﺍﻟ ﺍ ﺩ ، ﻯ ﺍﻟﻠ ﺍ ، ﻭﻳ ﺍﺍﻟﻠ l. ﺍﺍ ﺍﺍ ﺍ ، ﺍﻟ ﺍ ﺍﺍﺍ ، ، ﺃ l ﺍ ﺍ ، ﺍﺭ ﺍﻟﻠ ، ﻭﺍ ﺍ ﻳﺍ ﺍ ﺍ l ! ﺍﻟﻠ ﺍ ﺍﺍ ، ﻭﺍ ـ ﺍﺍﻟﻠ ـ ﻭﺍ ﺍ ﺍ l ﺍﻻﺍ

Nahjul Balaaghah about Piety In Sermon 191, Ali: Taq’wa and the Account I advise you, O' servants of Allah, to heed Allah because heeding Him is His right over you, and through it, it creates your right over Him.

The Heeding path is without blemish and its implementer truly gains, and the one who holds to it should closely guard it. Heeding Allah had presented itself to the people who had already passed and to those coming after for their need to it for the morrow (Day of Judgment) ─when Allah will revive His creation again, take back what He has given, and take into account of what He has bestowed. ﺍﻭ ﻯ ، ﺍ ﺍﻟﻠ ، ﻭﻳ ﺍ ﺍﻟﻠ ﻯ ﺍﻟﻠ l ، ﻳﻭﺍ ﺍ ﻯ ﺍﻟﻠ ، ﻳﻭﺍ ﺍ ﺍﻟﻠ ، ﺍﻟﻠ ﻱ ﺩ ﺍﻟ ﻳ ﻯ ، ﺍ ﻯ ﻱ ﺍ ﺍ ﺍ l ، ﺍ ﺍ ، ﺍﺍ ﺍﺑ ، ﺍ ﺍ ﻯ ﺍﻻ ﺍﺍﻳ ﺍﺍﺭﻳ ﺍ ﺍ ﺩ l. ﺍ ﻯ ، ﺍﻟﻠ ﺍ ﻯ

Through it its seeker succeeds, and its holder to safety can escape, and by it a person achieves his aims. Perform the good deeds, for such acts will elevate, and repentance will promote, and prayer can be heard, ─while conditions are quiet and the register of the two angels are recording. Hasten towards the virtuous before old age, lingering illness, or the snatching of death. For death ends enjoyments, mars your pleasures and undoes your target, it is an unwanted visitor, an invincible adversary and an un-accounting killer. ، ﺍ ﻛ ﺓ ، ﻣ ﻛ ﺓ ، ﻳ ﺍﺩ ، ﻯ ﺍﻟﻠ ﺍ ﺍﺩ l. ﺍ ﺍﻟ ﺍ ، ﻭﺍ ﺍﺍ ، ﺍ ﺍﻟ ﺍ . ﺍﻻ ﻻ ﺍ ، ﺍﺍ ﺍ ، ﺍﻟ ، ﺍﻭﺍ ﺍ l ، ﺗ ﺍﺳ ، ﺿ ﺍﺳ ، ﺍﻭﺍ ﺍﻻ ﺍ ﺭ ﺍﻛ l ، ﻭﺏ ، ﺍ ﺍ ﺍ l ، ﺍﺗ ﻭﺏ
